My one moment with Ali
Sam Smith - Back in 1961, I was visiting Hugh Haynie, cartoonist for the Louisville
Courier Journal when the elevator door opened and this young black guy
came out proto-rapping and working his fists in every direction to some
friends' delight. "Who the hell is that?" I asked and Hugh explained it
was a new fighter by the name of Cassius Clay.
